Los Angeles documents six new two-panel paintings by Ellsworth Kelly, each made from a single shaped canvas featuring a dramatic curve carefully painted with many coats of a bright color (blue, green, yellow, orange). These curved panels are attached to a rectangular canvas painted in a contrasting color. Also reproduced here are a group of 1952-54 collages that Kelly made in Paris as a young man, including "Study for Black and White Panels," as well as the 1966 painting "Black over White." All of these works provide the inspiration for Kelly's monumental sculpture installed on the facade of the Matthew Marks Gallery. Among his largest works, Kelly's new Los Angeles sculpture is the first to incorporate a building's architecture into his own work: in one succinct gesture, the gallery's entire facade has become part of his sculpture.
